HayBuis Festival

Learn about Armenia’s local herbs in the heart of nature.
Ask any Armenian—herbs are essential to any meal. The HayBuis Festival, translated as “Armenian Herb,” celebrates these special ingredients and the traditional knowledge used to forage and prepare them.
The Festival is held in one of the most picturesque places of Armenia - the Apaga resort located in Yenokavan, Tavush region, an area known for its beautiful forests and mountains. Visitors learn about Armenian herbs and different methods of using them, including their healing properties. There is also a herbal tea party, educational games to learn about forest biodiversity, master cooking classes and other activities for children. And, if you are curious about what a 20-meter long lavash brduch (wrap) looks and tastes like, you can see and try it only at The HayBuis Festival.
